I am not familiar with that model of boot, but I gave Magnum a test twice, two separate models of boots bought years apart, and I hated them frankly. The soles wore as fast as the eraser on a pencil, the uppers separated from the soles, and the lace eyelets came loose quickly.
What are your applications? Daily wear, workwear, hiking, snow hiking, etc?
Nowadays I only buy Danner, Matterhorn, or Corcoran boots, depending on purpose. For work I wear Danner Acadias, I am on my second pair and those are my #1 favorite shoe of all time. During the winter I wear Matterhorn 1949s (maroon inserts), and during the summer Corcoran Field Boot IIs. The Corcorans aren't for everyone but I love them, on my third pair right now.
